OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha police shot and killed a man who authorities say refused to drop a gun during a confrontation with officers early Sunday.
Officers were called to the neighborhood near 30th and Marcy streets shortly after 3 a.m. because a man was reported shooting a gun outside a home.
Omaha police said when officers arrived, they found a 23-year-old man sitting inside an SUV with a gun in his hand.
Police said officers ordered Jeramyah Wilson to drop the gun for about six minutes, but he refused. Then police said Wilson made a “brisk movement” toward the passenger side of the vehicle where an officer was behind cover. Two officers fired at Wilson.
CPR was performed on Wilson who was taken to a hospital where he died.
No officers were hurt in the incident.
